It s a while ago but my experience of the staff was that they were shocking; they waited til the commericial break in Emmerdale before they served us....

Also the nature of student drinking might have changed [and drinking generally as a result of the 03 act with later close options]. Now it's fill up in the flat then off to the centre of town for late drinks. There' you'd be out of the door by 11.30

This very similar view of the Crown Hotel and the Dun Cow from Gateshead Libraries is dated 1960::
Update: The Dun Cow was rebuilt for thr umpteenth time in 1939.

Alf,
Interesting photo. The shop in my photo has the same advert above the door and the building on the right has the same scaffolding in place as well. The main difference is that the Dun Cow has scaffolding around it in mine but not in yours. The pub does look new in your photo so I'll date mine as early 1960.

Cheers,
GBDT

Former Dun Cow Public House, (Green Energy Consultants, Autotrader House), 65 High Street, Gateshead - query about build date & when it changed from being a public house

^^^

Following up on recent posts

Do not think the current Dun Cow pub building dates from 1939, as noted by Alf in his post #7522

After spending a reasonable amount of time looking at "old interactive" maps and "old pictures" finally came across this one in the Gateshead Local Studies Collection with a bit more text compared to other pictures of the building on that site

Extra last sentence reading "This photograph shows The Dun Cow just before the third rebuild in the 1950s."

From the look of the structure currently standing it would appear to be a late 1950's rather than 1939 building

Former Dun Cow pub

The Gateshead Libraries caption is a bit misleading when it says, "The last Dun Cow building of the 1939, rebuild still stands". I read to mean that the 1939 building was still standing. However, I found a reference in the Journal for 15th. June 1961 announcing the opening of the new Dun Cow "a few yards south of the present site". Unfortunately I haven't got the cutting only the reference to it in a newspaper archive.

Former Beeswing Hotel, 1 Gosforth Street, Felling, Gateshead, Conversion of building into 12 residential apartments - Planning Application

On Gateshead Planning Portal on 23/11/20 (late arrival in list beginning 16/11/20)

EXTRACT

DC/20/00939/FUL

Conversion of building into twelve residential apartments (10 x 1 bed units and 2 x 2 bed units)..

Former Beeswing Hotel 1 Gosforth Street Felling Gateshead NE10 9LS

Application Validated - Tue 13 Oct 2020

Status - Awaiting decision


From Design & Access document of planning application

EXTRACT

The last use of the building was residential in line with planning application reference 595/00 (change of use from public house to residential dwelling house (use class C3)). Given the scale of the building and the inefficient use of it as one dwelling house this application seeks permission for its conversion to 12 residential units.

See inside the 120-year-old North Shields pub that's been deserted for 20 years

The Edwardian-built Wolsington House pub in North Shields has been closed since 2001 - but now the striking old building with views of the River Tyne is up for sale for £400,000

Frozen in time, the former Wolsington House pub in North Shields stands alone - seemingly a relic of a past age.

For decades it served an area that teemed with Tyneside life - terraced streets that housed hundreds of working class families, while right on its doorstep was Smith's Dock with its army of thirsty workers.

The old streets and its people are long-gone - as is the famous River Tyne ship repair yard, but there is now major regeneration going on in the area. Could this signal a new lease of life for the 'Wol' which has been closed and deserted for the last two decades?

The striking red-brick building on North Shields' Burdon Main Row is up for sale for £400,000.

Ryan Smith, speaking on behalf of the current owners of the Wolsington House, said: "It was purchased in 1999 - and it has a long history. It served Smith's Dock shipyard workers and local folk through two world wars.

Newcastle city centre Wilder's Bar under demolition as part of massive redevelopment plan

As the regeneration of Newcastle's run-down East Pilgrim Street area continues, the former favourite Wilder's Bar is under demolition

Film footage and images of Wilder's Bar in Carliol Square being razed to the ground was captured at the weekend by ChronicleLive reader Vahid Ravaghi.

Wilder's Bar was originally known as the Duke of Wellington. In modern times, as well as generally being known as Wilder's, for a while it was called Astro, and was Enigma towards the end.

I know it's been a Sambucas for a few years now, but what was the pub in East Howdon( think it was called The Duke Of Wellington) like? I've always wondered in this fairly cut off part of Tyneside, more so after it was by passed, if it was welcoming to outsiders or a bit like the Slaughtered Lamb in An American Werewolf In London.

The old pubs and inns of Tynemouth - you would never go thirsty with 26 in the village

Chronicle Live website article from 05/04/21

EXTRACT

The old pubs and inns of Tynemouth - you would never go thirsty with 26 in the village

Tynemouth today is a favourite destination (in normal times) for folk who fancy a drink - and many of the pubs in the coastal village have a long history

The pubs, inns, taverns and hotels of Tynemouth have been manifold over the years. Local historian CHARLIE STEEL looks at the story of the village's old drinking holes

Over the past 200 years, Tynemouth has been home to around 26 inns, taverns, hotels and public houses. You would never go thirsty!

If we limit the count to the old established or purpose-built licensed houses within the central core of the village - the immediate vicinity of Front Street - then the number is around 15.
